Canon today added a new product to its camera ecosystem, the EOS R8, which is the cheapest full-frame camera in the company’s history. Considering its specifications, this device can be a good option for people who don’t have a lot of budget to buy a camera.
The Canon EOS R8 can shoot at 8 frames per second in front curtain electronic shutter mode and 40 frames per second in normal electronic shutter mode. This camera can record 100 C-RAW+JPEG files on a UHS-II memory card in each shooting. Also, the autofocus system with Dual Pixel technology is able to identify people, animals and different devices with the help of artificial intelligence.

With the EOS R8, you can shoot 4K video at 60fps and sample 6K. In Full HD mode, it is also possible to record videos at a rate of 180 frames per second. Canon claims that this device can shoot continuously for two full hours; But if you use 4K 60fps or FHD 180fps, this time will be around 30 minutes due to temperature limitations.

This camera uses optical stabilization in compatible lenses and is also equipped with Canon’s digital stabilization. Other features of EOS R8 include microHDMI port with support for up to 4K 60p, microphone and headphone port, LP-E17 battery and USB webcam support.
